Journal Entry 4
I think the whole family needed that birthday party, as after that, we all did not seem so sad anymore. We still mourned dad, but the pain somehow seemed less, the wound not so raw anymore.
Geraldine, ever absorbed in her writing and painting, did not seem to have time for much else.
She had completed her sci-fi novel entitled, “The Holmberg-Wiedler Effect” , and was receiving $103 in royalties. The townie, Lawrence Lum, whom had commissioned her to write the novel had become her friend.
He had even moved in next door. Geraldine spent time with him in between her writing and painting.
She had been commissioned to do another painting for a business in town and was working on that as well.
Meanwhile, since I worked ‘odd’ hours *cough*, teehee, I had been spending alot of time in town in the day time. I met a lovely man there.
His name was Joss Granger. He was fun to be with and we often met to go to movies or picnic at the park.
I got quite attached to him quite quickly… and well, mom would be horrified if she knew this, but one day “all resistance crumbled”, as it were, in the local movie theatre.
**Erm, I am reading this Maxi!!**
I loved being pregnant and my tummy became quite large!
GUESS WHERE I went into labour?? …
What is it with us CrinkleWinkle girls and bathrooms and labour??
World… meet Evangeline,
My precious little blessings.
